The LoneyBin 5.x

The run-off of my brain, in digital form.

While we’re waiting for the import parts to arrive, there is plenty to do. I’ve been making progress on the wooden frame, and first iteration of ABS parts have been printed by my friend Sam. All the source for the STLs and DXFs and what-not are in the Varnerized Prusa i3 development branch. Let’s have a look at what we’ve done so far.

Parts The Varnerized Blue ABS parts. Thanks, Sam!

Frame The frame parts and router templates adheared with carpet tape. The blocks of plywood are the blanks for the extrusion replacements.

Now we wait for the 1/4” flush-trim router bits to be delivered (should be today) and then… we rout. I may try gluing up two sheets of high-grade 1/4” plywood to make a ‘thinner’ y-carriage. I fear the 3/4” plywood may prove too ‘heavy’ and lead to excessive shaking during printing.

After routing / milling / cutting / drilling, I’ll be taking some time to sand things a bit, then giving them a coat of primer. I do want this thing to look decent when it’s done.
